Great trip, enjoyed the sights and the guide was superb! The drive was excellent, including the open air transport up into the hills! And the coffee stop on the way back down was fantastic, with amazing views. The temple is incredible and definitely well worth a visit. Good value!

Great half day tour, guide was friendly and informative. Visit to the tribe was interesting however the temple was absolutely breathtaking ... Must see when in Chiang Mai.

As we just were two persons, we in fact had a private tour with our guide Aoi an the driver. Aoi does a very sympathetic job by giving a lot of personal, social and cultural background information on what we are seeing. Wat Doi Suthep is just overwhelming! The hilltribe village can be seen as a hardly visible impression about what life here may have been in former times, covered now by thick layers of tourism. But then people here have to make a living out of their possibilities...

The temple is a must but the tribe was pointless. Took ages to get there and there was no one around. We ended up on a private tour and our guide was ok but as part of another trip we saw the Karen tribe. This was better.

The guide and driver were very pleasant and we did have a good day. There were only the two of us and we were looked after very well.
